Thumbs of Glory

ILL Thumb

I couldn’t do my research without the hard laboring librarians of ILL.  Those at my own institution process and vet my innumerably requests, but others all over the world slave at scanners to bring me tidbits of information.  My favorite part is when I find a little trace of their humanity in the margins of my scans.  Thumbs of glory disseminating esoteric knowledge free of charge.  Or, more accurately, as all the coversheets now say:


Anyway in honor of the thumb above: ” Dear Librarian of Binghampton University, THANK YOU!”
